Nymph

Nymph

A Poem by Lisasview
"

My Nymph poem was composed using Richards original 'Five 'n Eight" form. I really enjoyed writing using this form.

"

   Nymph....


Every curve just right,

she moves out of sight ...

beneath tall trees, he gleams a glimpse!

Sweet body reflects

butterfly effects;

she skips unaware, like a Nymph.


Through branches entwined,

he trails close behind …

golden pond scene, quite glorious!

Maidens splash about,

swimming in 'n out;

watching, feeling victorious.


Transfixed, he gazes ...

what's seen amazes;

hidden secrets need to be kept.

"Naiad, have you gone,

or bathing 'til dawn?"

Soaked in dreams; alas, overslept....

There is a nice surprise here and you have done it so cleverly! it is quite humorous too... the final line... It's worded charmingly, seductive, dreamy and captivating... these are my favourite words - Sweet body reflects butterfly effects; she skips unaware, like a Nymph - Beautiful.

Very good. The humor, the excitement and mystery. Well said, love the play on words, imagery and fun. Every curve just right,

she moves out of sight ...

beneath tall trees, he gleams a glimpse! Again- good intrigue to this.

You are really great at picking them out.
This is very nicely done in a format I've never seen before (not really being a poet) which works well for the subject, with Nymphs being as rare as they are

First time reading your poetry, and I must appreciate how these words rhyme gleefully with imagery and beauty. Playful and serene vibes. A nymph is intriguing. Thanks for the work. Take care.

“Sweet body reflects
butterfly effects;
she skips unaware, like a Nymph.”

Exquisite imagery and seductive, droll verses Lisa. Classical language, lovely flow and rhyme like the splashes of a pristine brook. He overslept and, alas, she slipped away- I smile and simply love it!
